Whether you’re lounging poolside or hanging out on a rooftop, we’ve got a great, refreshing summer cocktail to help you cool down. We’ve created an easy step-by-step guide to mixing Katsuya’s delicious Burning Mandarin. Of course, not all of us are master mixologists, so if you’d rather just relax poolside, and let someone else do the heavy lifting, Collins Cocktail Catering will take care all your boozy needs (hot bartenders included).
